Break it down: King's Ely pupils learn Flawless street dance

Street dance aces Flawless put students through their paces during a high energy masterclass at King's Ely

Posted by Julian Owen | January 01, 2018 | Events

Around 40 dance-loving King’s Ely Junior and King’s Ely Senior students found their groove during Flawless' fun-filled two-and-a-half-hour masterclass in the school’s Hayward Theatre.

Flawless were founded by Marlon “Swoosh” Wallen in 2004 and went public in 2005. Since starring on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, and as well as becoming a household name, they have appeared in smash hit movies Street Dance 3D 1 and 2, headlined for the Royal Family performing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert alongside Kylie Minogue, performed for the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympics, heated things up with the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing professionals, and made history collaborating with the exceptional English National Ballet.

Director of Drama and Theatre at King’s Ely, Nick Huntington, who organised the masterclass, said: “Flawless is one of the premier dance collectives in the world and to see our students enjoying such a fantastic, high octane workshop - alongside a small crew from Sarah Baker’s Funk It Up Dance group - was really something special. It was a great end to our masterclass season here at King’s Ely, which will be back next term with workshops covering Theatre of Cruelty, Masterclass goes to the Ballet (Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella), Stage Combat and Musical Theatre.”
